Solio Ranch Game Reserve Day Trip

Solio Ranch Game Reserve Day Trip is a classic 1-day Safari package to Solio Ranch situated 180 km north of Nairobi. By road, the journey takes around 4 hours from Nairobi.

This Full-Day Solio Ranch Conservancy safari begins in Nairobi where you are collected from your accommodation at 0500 hours in the morning. Leaving Nairobi we make our way straight to Solio Ranch. Arriving at Solio Ranch we check in and embark on our exciting game drive in the untamed bush.

Entering the park we make our way north as we scan for wildlife, birds, and other creatures. Solio Game Reserve is the premier rhino breeding sanctuary in Kenya, which we are sure to see, along with an array of other large mammals, including lions, buffalos, and leopards.

During the game drive, we pause to watch any interesting animal or bird sightings and take photographs. We also stop to stretch our legs at the picnic area inside Solio Ranch and later continue on a game drive passing several watering holes where animals often congregate to drink and bathe.

Reaching a safe picnic site, we have our picnic lunch in the shade. Then we make our way back through the conservancy watching for wildlife action along the way. We exit the park later this afternoon and return to Nairobi.

Back in the city, you can choose to be dropped off at one of Nairobi’s excellent restaurants or at your accommodation, bringing your action-packed day safari to a close.
